ORDNANCE DEPARTMENT MODEL 1903 SPRINGFIELD RIFLE GRENADE LAUNCHER BLACK RUBBER BUTT PAD – AN EXCELLENT ORIGINAL SPECIMEN:   A scarce accessory for your Model 1903 Springfield Rifle collection, this  original US Ordnance Department issue Grenade Launcher Black Rubber Rifle Butt Pad is in excellent condition.   

Normally found with chips or pieces missing and splits in the rubber cup, this pad has survived in excellent condition with no signs of wear or damage.  The molded-in “US”, the Ordnance Department flaming bomb, and the government drawing/part number are all in excellent condition with no wear or chips out of the edges.  The original foam insert is present and in full form.  The top edge of the cup is pliable, but the rubber has aged as is to be expected on these originals, and it is not advisable to attempt to stretch the pad over the butt of a rifle.  To do so would risk breaking or cracking the old rubber, and given the nice condition of this pad, it would be best to simply display it next to your rifle.  (0336)  $100
